My Biggest Deer Ever!
I was sitting in my treestand on a nice November evening and had only seen a small doe the day before, so I figured that it was going to be another one of those weekends.
About 5:00 P.M. when I heard my uncle take a shot and thought to myself that the hunt was probably over. It was about 5:08 when I heard a very loud crack to my right -- I new it couldn't have been a squirrel -- so I zoned in. I scanned the area and caught a glimpse of a deer's back leg. Through a small opening all I could see was his body and just the bottom of his antlers. When he took one more step, I saw enough of his antlers to know he was a shooter. I picked out my spot to shoot and when he stepped into it, I shot.
About 10 minutes later, my uncle came to help me find my trophy and it turned out that this was the same deer that I had heard him shoot at earlier. Lucky for me, the buck came right to me. My uncle and I searched for the deer and were suprised when we located it. I had no idea that I had taken a contender for our county record, but knew that it was a monster. I owe all of this hunt to my uncle, for taking me hunting, and introducing me to the great outdoors. Thanks!
